Danielle Woods, Attorney
Danielle has been working with advisory clients for more than 20 years. She began work in investment management in 1998 with the investment firm, Mitchell Vaught & Taylor, Inc. She also advised clients as an attorney in matters of estate and tax planning since graduating from Northern Illinois University College of Law, where she focused her coursework on estates, tax, and securities law.
Danielle was instrumental in the growth of her previous firm where she wore many hats over the course of 20 years, including Director, Institutional Portfolio Manager, Senior Financial Advisor, and Chief Compliance Officer.
